A Viking feast in Lofoten

Enjoy an exotic, historic Viking evening!

At the Lofotr Viking Museum, the largest Viking building ever found has been recreated. The original Chieftain’s house was established in about 500 AD and was inhabited until around 900 AD, and the rebuilt version exhibits finds from this era. The Chieftain and the Lady of the house invite you to join them for a real Viking feast in the banquet hall.

Experience the magic and excitement as they make sacrifices to the Gods, praying that the sun will return to avoid Ragnarok, the end of the world.

After the Viking feast, served with home-brewed mead, you will travel by bus to Svolvaer where you will rejoin the ship.

Where do the magic Northern Lights come from?

The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, are an ethereal display of colored lights shimmering across the night sky. What causes them?

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all.
    I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour.
    Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
